I received some “Happy Mail" this week. I had ordered some stamps from Unity Stamp Company during their big sale, this was the first time ordering from them so I didn't know what to expect. I love the quality of the images that the stamps produced, however their stamps aren't stamped with the image. By that I mean the red rubber stamp was adhered to foam allowing it to cling, but they don't stamp the image on the foam so you really have to pay attention as to which direction you are holding the stamp prior to stamping. I am not sure how I feel about that, but again the image quality is there.
I produced this square card using a couple of the stamps I had ordered, and I have to say I really like how it turned out. This is a rather large square card it measures 5 ¼ x 5 ¼ making it a great card for hand delivery, to avoid the extra postage cost. I do think that in the future any square card I make will be smaller; I found it hard to fill the space without over doing it.
The stack of bowls and the sentiment is from Unity Stamp Company's itty bitty collection, bowl-full of comfort. I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored it in with my Spectrum Noir markers. The stamped image behind the bowls is a background stamp from the Unity set Take Care of you, I believe this could become one of my favorite stamps from those that I own. Both of the stamped images were fussy cut and adhered to the card, prior to adhering them I added a couple of torn pieces of gold polka dot washi tape to my scrapbook paper. The green stripped paper is from The Paper Studio The Basics No. 2 paper pack.
I would love to hear your comments and opinions on this card, so leave me a note below after you have chosen to follow my blog. Thanks for looking!
